Sustainability Focused Cleaning & Disinfecting Solutions

Lighthouse EIP is taking an active role in fighting pollution and climate change with safer chemistries and environmentally sustainable solutions. 

Safe Chemistries & Sustainable Solutions

To establish the cleanest, safest possible environment for our customers, Lighthouse must first consider the health of our natural environment. Our core foundational infection prevention principles call for environmental sustainability, which is why we strive to create programs and solutions that take into account the health of our planet.

Lighthouse offers a suite of safer, less caustic chemistries, industry-leading electrostatic technologies to promote energy and water savings, as well as recyclable, single-use microfiber to drastically reduce energy consumption and harmful waste.

Boost Savings & Eliminate Waste with Recyclable Microfiber

Trust™ Single-Use recyclable microfiber mops and wipes promote water and energy savings by removing the laundering process altogether, in turn reducing energy costs and eliminating dangerous waste water that contains harmful microplastics.

Trust™ microfiber is constructed of 100% polyester (PET 1 plastic) that is fully recyclable.

The Dangers of Launderable Microfiber

Water & Energy Consumption

The laundering process and transportation of laundered microfiber requires vast amounts of energy and water. Effective laundering requires approximately 3 gallons of fresh water per 1 pound of microfiber.

Harmful Dying Process

Reusable microfiber is usually dyed dark to hide residual dirt and grime following the laundering process. Studies show that dyeing one ton of reusable microfiber textiles can require as much as 200 tons of water.

Pastic Microfiber Pollution

Laundering microfiber and other synthetic fabrics can shed tens of thousands of microplastic particles into the ocean and other natural environments per wash, causing a ripple effect of devistating repercussions.
